Simplified Pitt Guest Wi-Fi Access Arrives Monday, Aug. 9

Wednesday, August 4, 2021 - 16:05


Based on positive feedback from the launch of the Anyroam Guest Wi-Fi option in March and declining use of Pitt’s legacy guest Wi-Fi system, Pitt Information Technology is upgrading its Pitt Guest Wi-Fi service to Anyroam, effective Monday, Aug. 9.

Simpler, Better Guest Wi-Fi

The enhanced Pitt Guest Wi-Fi service, now powered by Anyroam, simplifies guest Wi-Fi and provides several benefits over the previous service:

  • Does not require Pitt-affiliated sponsors to approve guests

  • Does not require guests to enter a password
  • Enables guest Wi-Fi access for up to one year instead of 30 days
  • Provides access at most Pitt campus locations and other institutions that participate in Eduroam and Anyroam

Connect In 3 Easy Steps

Guests can use the service by completing three steps after they arrive on campus:

  1. Connect to the network named “Pitt Guest Wi-Fi Setup”
  2. Complete the one-time device configuration wizard
  3. Connect to the “Eduroam” network for Wi-Fi access from this point forward
